(KNSI) - Maintaining an undefeated record can be a tall order unless every member continues putting forth solid effort like this week's winner.

The Sartell Sabres Volleyball Team is now 10-0 on the season due to the consistent team play and high-level effort from Hope Grasswick.

Grasswick's 32 digs and three ace-serves at the North Branch Invitational helped her team capture the crown against great competition.

Although stats tell a major part of what Grasswick brings to her team, Sabres' coach Sarah Hornseth likes how she plays a position that doesn't always get noticed.

"I know sometimes that back-row position is kind of a thankless job; [Hope] is very consistently a high-level player for us, she is all over the court, she does the job of two people so we feel it's important to recognize the leadership that she brings to our team."

KNSI broadcasted the Sabres battling against ROCORI on Tuesday night and Grasswick impressed play-by-play announcer, Tom Terhaar.

"When the setter barely has to move to set up the offense because it was such a great pass from a libero, it makes everything smoother and that's exactly what we saw from Grasswick."

Hornseth and the Sabres will continue their quest to stay undefeated when they travel to St. Cloud Tech to face the Tigers Thursday, September 19th at 7:00 p.m.

Congratulations, Hope and good luck to you and the Sartell Sabres Volleyball Team the rest of the season and beyond!
